Date Night: Pasta Pomodoro
After having Sicily last year, Ben and I decided to set a goal to have a date night once a week. It doesn’t have to be something super fancy, but just one meal a week that we fully commit to each other without any distractions. Hiring a babysitter every week can be a bit of a challenge so we have recently been doing some date nights at home which can be just as fun! We cook a delicious meal together after putting Sicily to bed and get to enjoy each other’s company while having some one-on-one time. The key to date night in is making something that doesn’t take forever and has easy clean-up! Neither of us want to be doing dishes all night long. Last weekend for our date night at home we made Pasta Pomodoro. This one pot simple pasta dish is fresh, flavorful and ready in under 30 minutes. This is my kind of meal. The key to this dish is really good quality ingredients. Since there are only 7 ingredients, they all need to be really good. Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been my go-to for years because of its fruity flavor, smooth texture and low acidity content. You can tell a good olive oil by its smell, taste and appearance so make sure to always test it out before buying one! With good olive oil, canned tomatoes and fresh cheese, you cannot go wrong with this dish! I hope you make this pasta dish at your next date night in and get to enjoy some good quality time with a loved one. Enjoy!
